Mexico 2006: Morelia Jazztival

In March 2006, Francesco returned to Morelia to perform at the third annual Morelia Jazztival with a talented sextet featuring Juan Alzate on tenor sax, cuban master percussionist (and Grammy Award winner) Roberto Vizcaino, Efren Capiz on drums, Ivan Lara on electic bass, and Flavio Meneses on electic guitars.  Playing to a sold out audience in the enclosed square of a former 17th century cloister, the latin jazz quintet performed mostly original compositions by Francesco, a blend of jazz, classical, afrocuban and South American influences with vibrant percussive and rhythmic elements.
